Biscuit and Sausage Gravy Casserole

– Really good! For those of you asking about Why packaged gravy? Why canned biscuits? Make it how you want – this recipe is intended to be EASY. When you work 12 hours a day, have 3 kids to come home to, you need all the easy recipes you can get. If you don’t like a recipe, change it or don’t make it. Oh, and I don’t even cook my own sausage but use pre-cooked Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles instead, Pioneer packaged gravy mix and Grands biscuits. I do saute some diced vidalia onion to add in.

– Fantastic! I’m going to make this an annual feast. (Just wanted to reassure the food police that I’m not planning to ‘obesify’ myself or my family) I think it’s interesting that the creator was criticized by both sides of the aisle. What?? Not using the sausage fat plus added butter for the gravy?? Using package gravy mix? It continues to amaze me that people feel free to criticize the recipe maker AND infer that readers don’t have the sense to know whether or not to serve this to their family. I’ll say it again…. The dish was fantastic!

– Excellent !! And Easy Breezy….Well, for once in my life, I made it exactly as the recipe reads. I usually ALWAYS change something or look at several recipes and try to use the best ideas from each. Not this time!! And I agree with some who said why the heck not use packaged gravy and canned biscuits. If you’ve got time to make your own biscuits and gravy from scratch, go for it. Then write your own recipe and tell us how to make biscuits and gravy from scratch. Easy is why I chose this one. Thank you Angela.

Ingredients :

1 lb of Sage flavored sausage
1 yellow onion diced
4 tbs flour
2 cups milk
8 oz cream cheese, softened and cubed
salt and cracked black pepper to taste
1 package Crescent rolls
1 package Golden Layers Flaky Biscuits

Directions:

Using a large, deep skillet cook crumbled sausage over medium heat until browned.
TIP: Dice up your onion while you wait!
Drain all grease except about 1 tsp. and add diced onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile preheat oven to 350 and in a large sauce pot heat milk over medium low heat and whisk in flour.
Cook and constantly stir for 3-4 minutes until slightly thickened.
Then add cream cheese and stir until melted. Keep whisking and get all those lumps out!
Add salt and pepper to taste 🙂
Pour sausage mixture into gravy or gravy onto sausage mixture and stir it up!
Grease a 9X13 baking dish, then spread out flat sheet of crescent roll.
TIP: have fun opening the crazy cans!
Pour sausage gravy onto the crescent sheet and spread to cover.
Top with flaky biscuit dough, spaced evenly on top.
Bake for 20-22 minutes at 350 degrees until biscuits are golden brown on top.
Tips and Observations:
This dish is way more delicious than we planned on it being!
The gravy taste soooo good, and we come from a family who has had the same gravy recipe for years and we were pretty weary of this one, but it might be even better than what mom used to make 😉
(SORRY MOM! <3)
Make sure you grease the pan!
We will use the Jr Grands biscuits next time in order to fit more biscuits on top
If you love this recipe please enjoy and share!
